1910 Jefferson Co., Alabama coal mine disaster...



Item # 676777

May 05, 1910

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 5, 1910

* Jefferson County, Alabama disaster
* Palos no. 3 coal mine explosion
* Early, same day initial headline


The front page has a nice banner headline: "MINE EXPLOSION NEAR BIRMINGHAM KILLS 185 MEN" with brief "breaking news" report. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 10 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
